As a global leader in the effort to combat climate change, California is at the forefront of crafting ambitious energy policies designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while ensuring affordability and reliability.


The CFEE Energy Summit convenes state policymakers with senior labor, environmental, industry, and local government leaders to address the technical, commercial, and political challenges inherent to pursuing a net zero carbon future.


Previous Energy Summits have facilitated policy related to cap and trade, renewable energy procurement and integration, carbon fuel standards, and energy efficiency. Specific legislative outcomes include AB32 (Nunez and Pavley), and AB398 (Garcia), and AB1054 (Dodd), among others.
